    SSL with donation form and Wordpress JotForm integration plugin

    Asked by GenYOUth on August 03, 2012 at 02:26 PM

    Hi,

    I created a donation form and used the PayPal Pro API integration. My website is a self-hosted Wordpress site and I tried to embed the secure form script in the HTML of a page and it keeps stripping it from the code. I downloaded the JotForm Integration plugin for Wordpress that allows you to embed the form like so '[jotform id=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX]' without needing the script and it displays the form as it should. However, I'm wondering if the form is secure? Is there a way to secure a form if you're just using the the form ID in the code? I think I will have to install an SSL certificate on the page anyway, but will that secure the contents of the form eventhough the form is hosted with JotForm? Also, since I've integrated it with PayPal, I'm assuming the credit card info is secure, but I'm not sure about the rest of form.

     

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Best,
    Matt

    After posting this I thought to try embedding it with a secure iFrame and it displays properly that way. However, I am still curious about whether there's a way to secure a form using the Wordpress JotForm Integration plugin? Also, if the form uses SSL, does the webpage need SSL also, if there's no other secure info on the page?

     

    Thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am still curious about whether there's a way to secure a form using the Wordpress JotForm Integration plugin? 

    I think that you can change the base URL in jotform-integration.php plugin file from http://form.jotform.us/jsform/ to https://secure.jotform.us/jsform/ in order to achieve this.

    Also, if the form uses SSL, does the webpage need SSL also, if there's no other secure info on the page?

    No, it is not required, since the form is using our secure connection.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
